AHS Heritage Mix Meadow TurfMat really does take biodiversity to a whole new level. With over 20 beautiful wildflower species in the mix, you will be sure to see a varied and colourful display year after year.
The 22 species of UK native wildflowers and grasses in AHS Heritage Mix Meadow TurfMat have proved to us that they adapt well to growing in shallow, poor nutrient soils with very little human intervention.
AHS Heritage Mix Meadow TurfMat was originally developed to meet the demand for a quick-to-install green roofing material with instant plant coverage. It does that job admirably, however, we rather like the way it happily brings a splash of colour to gardens – and so do the butterflies, moths and bees!
Most of the plant species in AHS Heritage Mix Meadow TurfMat are perennial. That means if they are happy on your roof or in your garden, they will grow back year after year. Each of the species will respond differently to soil type, local weather conditions and care regimes.
Your AHS Heritage Mix Meadow TurfMat will be mown before harvest so that plants are not damaged during transportation. The flowering plants will not be blooming when it is delivered. Depending upon the time of year, it can take a few weeks for AHS Heritage Mix Meadow TurfMat to establish, grow and start blooming. Although AHS Heritage Mix Meadow TurfMat can be installed at any time of year, if you would like it to flower in its first summer we recommend installation before the end of March.
Each piece of AHS Heritage Mix Meadow TurfMat covers 1 square metre. If installing on a roof, you may need mechanical lifting gear as the rolls can be quite heavy.
